Alright it’s just a rumor at this point, but it looks like All Nippon Airways is thinking about where to send their future 787s. At first the planes might just do some domestic routes—or like a short jaunt over to Hong Kong—but after that it seems like Europe is on the schedule. One of the head honchos at the airline recently said that Europe would be an option for the 787 as soon as February. We don’t know the cities just yet, but we’re thinking they’re going to be some good ones. Of course, check back and we’ll fill you in as soon as we’ve confirmed the juicy Dreamliner details.
· Korean Air:
Now that they’ve got a few A380s kicking around the hangar, Korean Air is trying their best to send them overseas filled with passengers. The airline’s latest plan is some nonstop superjumbo jet service between Seoul-Incheon and Frankfurt. The airline already sends Boeing 777s back and forth between the two continents, but it’s definitely way more fun with the in-flight lounge and other fun thanks to the Airbus A380. The plane change takes place at the beginning of December, so if you had plans to fly this route check your dates.

This week brings more news and routes from VivaAerobus, as the low cost carrier is looking to further expand into the United States. Miami and Orlando are getting nonstop flights to and from Monterrey. The cities will become the fourth and fifth US destinations for the carrier once the jets start flying this November. Things will head back and forth thanks to the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737s.
